If we do sign Jaminson, anyone think we wouldn't be drafting in the top 4 in next year draft?

I really thing we could win some games if we do sign Jaminson with the new additions of Gordon and MKG.

But I would want us to suck again so we could have a high lottery pick to make a play at some of the big stars next year for a Noel or Zeller.

i'd rather just tough one more bad season out too, but jamison could be really good for the development of our young players

also biz went toe to toe with dwight howard pretty well all things considered, so i don't know why he couldn't play center, or learn the position.

he's only 19-20 years old after all

I think Jaminson is a lock for us in FA, but would also like to see us play a play for Hickson. Hickson is still very young with huge potential ahead of him.

PG: DJ/Kemba
SG: Gordon/Hendo
SF: MKG/Brown
PF: Jaminson/Biyombo
C: Hickson/Mullens

Great lineup for a push for the playoffs.
Bad lineup for a high draft lottery pick.

What about a lineup of

DJ
Henderson
MKG
Jamison
Biyombo

with Hickson, Gordon, Kemba being the first three off the bench at PF, SG, and PG respectively? My only qualms with Gordon starting is his undersized nature guarding starting SGs..that is all. Also, I think Biyombo fares better against Centers than Hickson. IMO.

You are grading Jamison as if he is your prototypical run of the mill power forward with a great post up game and a lousy jump shot, when he actually breaks all of the rules of your prototypical power forward.

Jamison shoots the outside shot, and that's about it; but he does it very well (something the Bobcats need)

Those percentages should be judged more like a small forward than anything, because how many power forwards are hitting 34% of their three point shots.

Also, his points are efficient because it helped the team win. You don't look at the score and say "hey he scored 20 points on 14 shots, but they won by 10 points; so only 11 of points were actually efficient," no every point is efficient because it helps the team win.

I still doubt Hickson signs here, especially with us now going after Jamison.

The Bobcats don't need anymore 6-9 power forwards trying to play center.

Get a damn seven footer already.

Find me a 7 footer who's better than Hickson and is available. (other than Hibbert)

Like it or not, Biz is spending a lot of time at Center next year- not all of his time, but quite a bit of it. There simply arent enough decent players on the roster for him not to

And no offense, but even signing Antawn Jamison the bobcats wont be competing for a playoff spot next year. He might push the team out of a top 3 pick, but I would be shocked if we didnt finish in the bottom 5 or 6 next year even with him

that true shooting percentage is bad for a player of any position. if you actually knew what it meant you would understand this. it takes into consideration that many of his shots are 3s.

you clearly dont understand efficiency, but are beyond me trying to help explain these things. i get it dude, he is a forward that shoots 3s. the problem is he isnt great at it and thus its not a very good shot for anyone to take

jamison ranked 284 in the in nba in true shooting percentage last year. 1 spot ahead of biyombo
